The Mommy Makeover Specialist
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lisa Hunsicker is known throughout the Denver area for her expertise in one of Denver’s most popular cosmetic treatments, the mommy makeover. The mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic surgery procedures that can help women regain a youthful figure after pregnancy and childbirth. For most patients, this may involve a tummy tuck combined with breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery. Some women also want to reduce their labia after giving vaginal birth, and will add labiaplasty to surgeries that address other concerns with their breasts or abdominal areas. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Hunsicker who has been practicing in South Denver, CO for over twenty years, will tailor these procedures depending on your specific desires. Here in South Denver, Dr. Hunsicker performs the mommy makeover to help moms recapture aspects of their physique they appreciated before having children and renew their self-confidence. If you’re a mom who is bothered by the changes brought by pregnancy, then a mommy makeover may be right for you. The surgery is designed to address problems such as:
- Protruding tummy
- Persistent areas of body fat
- Sagging or deflated breasts
- Skin laxity in the labia minora
These conditions are very common for women who have given birth and breast fed. Fortunately, there are options to improve your shape and self-confidence if you choose to do so. Good candidates for the mommy makeover are healthy non-smokers, with a stable body weight and realistic expectations.
Techniques In The Mommy Makeover
During your personal consultation at Revalla’s state-of-the-art Littleton surgery center, Dr. Hunsicker and Dr. Nguyen will determine which procedures will help you regain your pre-baby body shape. She will answer any questions you have and discuss the procedure(s) in detail, so you can make an educated decision about your mommy makeover treatment. Patients are typically advised to wait at least 3 to 6 months after childbirth before considering a mommy makeover. Dr. Hunsicker and Dr. Nguyen can help you plan for the procedure, whether it is performed in the near future or several months from now.
Breast augmentation can help moms achieve larger, fuller, more symmetrical breasts. Saline or silicone implants are used to enlarge the breast size for these patients. Through the surgical insertion of implants, the surgery can improve your body proportion, feminine appearance, and self-confidence.

Breast lift surgery can raise and reshape sagging breasts by tightening loose tissue. In addition, some patients request that the size of their areola or nipples be reduced. In some cases, a breast lift is combined with augmentation to restore breast volume as well.
The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that can address a protruding tummy and stretched abdominal muscles. The doctor removes fat and skin from the abdominal area, creating a tighter, more toned tummy.
Liposuction is often used to target fat deposits that are particularly resistant to exercise and dietary changes, and is frequently used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. If needed, the doctor can perform liposuction during your mommy makeover, to help slim down specific areas of your body.
Many women complain that their labia have changed with age or due to childbirth or other issues. It is more of a universal concern that one might think. A labiaplasty is a relatively simple operation that can make a woman’s genitals look younger.
MonaLisa Touch offers mothers the latest in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. With this treatment, you can help to improve common concerns such as dryness or skin laxity without any need for recovery time.
Mommy Makeover Aftercare
A combined procedure of breast and body contouring can involve more downtime than a single procedure. You will probably need some help at home for about one week after surgery, while complete recovery requires several weeks. As with many cosmetic procedures, it may take about six months or even a year to appreciate the final results of your mommy makeover.
